What is Counselling?

Feeling sad?  Feeling down?  Stressed?  Need someone to talk to?

​Counselling is:

  • A confidential professional relationship of trust and respect

  • Where you can talk about your concerns and feelings, knowing that you will be respected, not judged

  • An opportunity to understand how or why you are feeling or reacting in a certain way

  • Where you can work out what to do

  • Where the counsellor may give you information relevant to what you are experiencing (e.g. what happens when we experience loss or change or stress.  Anxiety management or information around how people have lived with Autism and/or a learning disability)

  • Where you know that someone listens and cares
